What's Coming Up

  • Holding On

    Sundays at 9:30 and 11:00am

    We just celebrated one of the most joyful days of the year, Easter. Yet, it can be easy to lose sight of joy and hope as we go through the motions of life. During worship, come explore how others have held on to faith and to God in the midst of hard situations.

    Exploring 2 Corinthians

    Continues Sundays in May (EXCEPT NOT on Memorial Weekend) 

    Sunday, June 2  meets 7pm in room 109

    What is 2 Corinthians all about? Paul's second letter to the Corinthians explores the meaning of the cross in terms of personal suffering--his own, and that of all the Messiah's people. If in Galatians he is angry, if in Philippians he is joyful, in this letter his deep sorrow and the raw wounds of his own recent suffering are very apparent. Yet Paul is determined to view all of his suffering and all of the troubles of the world through the lens of the gospel. These studies by Tom Wright on this powerful epistle point us toward the strange comfort to be found in the suffering, death and resurrection-life of Jesus, the Lord of the world.
